Today, T5 Data Centers announced the acquisition of a 208,000-square-foot, Tier III data center facility in the Elk Grove Village suburb of Chicago. This is the ninth data center to be added to the T5 portfolio and extends T5’s market base to the greater Chicago area.
T5@Chicago is currently operational and partially occupied. The existing data center went online last year and was acquired by T5 Data Centers because it had the same attributes as T5’s existing data center portfolio.
Tim Bright, Vice President of Enterprise Markets for T5 Data Centers said :
Chicago is becoming an increasingly hot market for reliable data center services.
We were fortunate to find an available, operational facility with the data center architecture and quality consistent with T5 data center standards.
With this acquisition, we can offer Chicagoland regional customers move-in ready data center capacity, customizable and expandable to meet any need.
The building features a baseline Tier III infrastructure and the ability to easily customize operational controls to accommodate each customers’ data center services requirements. It is also said that additional capacity is being added to the facility to provide server ready space for future customers.
